For those that live in decently close proximity to Ontario's second largest terminal hub, GO Transit still offers a good number of bus routes to and from Square One on the weekend. One of my favourite trips (and yes, it is possible to have a preferred bus route) is Route 40, which is an extension of the 47J. The route originally served the Hamilton, Trafalgar, and Square One GO stations, but has now been expanded further east to Pearson Airport and Richmond Hill Centre GO on Hwy 7.
Initially, to travel from Mississauga to Markham, one would need to first travel to Union or Finch, and then board the 71 to Unionville, or a TTC/YRT/Viva bus from Finch. Route 40 has greatly reduced my travel time to a mere 45 minutes - a drastic improvement from the previous two-hour commute.
The fact that Route 40 utilizes the 407 as opposed to the 401 also helps ensure that riders are able to reach their destination of choice within the scheduled time frame.
We also passed by Downtown Markham, an area near Unionville GO currently undergoing development.
I was informed that the noodle bowls would be the fastest items to order, and that the sandwiches would require a bit more time. While several of our orders were delivered to our table in ten minutes or less, my Fish Fillet Sandwich wasn't particularly tardy either. It arrived no more than thirty seconds after the noodle bowls; consisting of layers of thinly-sliced tomatoes, mayo-slathered lettuce shreds, crispy fish fillet, and cheddar cheese sandwiched between two slices of lightly toasted white bread, it made for a very satisfying dinner. The defrosted McCain fries that were accompanying it were, regrettably, less impressive though.
Alas, it was unfortunate that this Sharetea location didn't accept credit either...
